Objectives: (1) To assess the HSB of nomadic tribes of Medchal Telangana. (2) To find out the factors Associated to HSB within the nomadic tribes. Methodology: The study has been meted out among nomadic tribe people of Medchal district. Pre-tested structured questionnaires are going to assess the HSB of nomadic tribes and to see the factors associated to HSB of the nomadic tribes. Results: During this study total 100 respondents out of 100 are interviewed, during this study men are 58% (n = 58) and ladies are 42% (n = 42). From those 100 respondents, 15 respondents are plagued by chronic illness and from 4 respondents aren’t taking any treatment and remaining 11 respondents are seeking allopathic treatment. There is less association between chronic illness of HSB of nomadic tribes and associated factors, because the P > 0.05 and high association between acute illness of HSB and associated factors, because the P < 0.05. Conclusion: Nomadic tribe people are conscious of chronic health illness but not acute illness, so HSB of chronic illness is more than acute illness.
